Survey Taking For Income
Making extra money can be very difficult. Part time jobs can take you away from friends and family and often pay very little. One exception to this is survey taking. In person and online survey taking can make you a good deal of extra money if you know how to go about things. There definitely is a wrong and right way to get into surveys. Below is some information on finding quality in person and online work. First, lets start with in person work.
In Person Survey Taking
In person work is often referred to as discussion groups or focus panels. In this type of work, you will be required to visit a local Akron market research firm and participate in a group panel. The great thing about this type of work is that it is very interesting and it pays well. You get to see new products and services before the general public does and they reward you well for your time. The drawback is that, as you might imagine, competition for these jobs can be intense. Most people who get this work have an inside connection that gets them the job. The odds are stacked against you a bit, but you should still consider giving it a shot. To do this, get your name on market research firms lists. The more you get on, the better. Here are a few places that you can call to get you started.

Online Survey Taking
Next, lets take a look at online work. This type of survey often gets a bad rap because people choose the wrong companies to work with. If you find some good survey websites that actually pay, you can do well. Yes, they pay less per job than in person work but you can make this up with volume. If you give it a little time, you can learn to be quite efficient at survey taking. With some practice and good question skimming techniques it would not be hard to do 6, 8 or even 10 surveys in an hour. That is when you can start making good money. Another good benefit to this type of work is that you can do it anywhere and at any time so it fits into even the busiest schedules. The work is also virtually unlimited and you could start making money in minutes if you so desired. Want to give it a try for yourself? Look at our top survey website list above.
